Yesterday wasn't the greatest day for baseball, but it's just that: baseball. A different game, a different day. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

Hopefully we win tonight.

We didn't have lady luck on our side last night. We had to face the best pitcher in the league in Jon Garland, and Tim Wakefield wasn't on his A-game in the second-half of the game.

One great thing about last night was Adam Stern's first professional home run. It was the 9th inning and he just took an inside pitch and roped it over the right-field fence.

Tonight Wade Miller (2-4, 5.01 ERA) pitches for Boston. His last outing wasn't too pretty, but we're hoping for better results against a poor-hitting team in Chicago. Chicago sends out "El Duque" Orlando Hernandez (7-2, 4.98). Historically Johnny Damon, Manny Ramirez and John Olerud hit well against Hernandez, so we may see good nights out of them.

Alex Cora gets the start at second base tonight. And Olerud is starting at first base, with Kevin Millar sitting on the bench.
